very strong views about governing and governance. and i don't early on that either side, governor schwarzenegger's has a monopoly on the best ideas. neither side has a monopoly on wisdom or so pricey and they can predict the future. so you start off with that mindset. i've been called for you as a moderate republican and i am just simply if you have a problem coming back to solve it. you don't run just to win. i mean, there's two parts to the equation. he went away many went together. as this in the last couple years we've lost the part of the equation. you run to win, run to win, run to win. what is the point of holding the office if you cat doing something with it? a couple observations that colleagues have made this is not just republicans or democrats. i suspect they ran against you. lindsey graham wasn't conservative enough, a good friend of mine told me a couple weeks ago that when i ran for governor, they thought it was too conservative to be governor of wisconsin. if the guy running for the senate and i don't think i'm conservative enough. even within the party were becomi

across greece and the first general strike since the new government took office in june. in the greek capital athens, tens of thousands took to the streets, some hurling firebombs, breaking windows, and setting fires. spain is expected to unveil massive cuts today in its budget plan for next year. on wednesday, protesters are rounded the spanish parliament for a second day to protest against austerity. opposition activists are claiming more than 300 people were killed in syria's violence on wednesday, the highest single-day toll of the 18-month- old conflict to date. the killings include an alleged massacre in the town of dh iyabia, where some 40 people were reportedly slain. video released by opposition activists shows rows of bloodied corpses covered in blankets. the nine nations refugee agency is warning up to 700,000 people may wind up fleeing syria by the end of the year, far greater than the previous estimate. some 294,000 refugees have already left syria this year. in an address to the u.n., egyptian president morsi criticized the regime of bashar al-assad, but warned against i
government was elected three months ago, a government forcing through yet another round of punishing spending cuts. in a country where one in four are already unemployed, perhaps one shouldn't be surprised the public anger at times tips over into violence. the morning had seen tens of thousands march on parliament demanding the government change course. they know it's hopeless, of course, their leaders are deep in negotiations with europe and the i.m.f. about cutting wages and pensions by anything up to 30%. and this in a city where already one in three businesses has closed. >> we have to do something for our future to have a regular job, to have a family. >> all of europe should have a voice against these policies. >> reporter: there will be little reassurance of promises of no more cuts after these. >> there is no scope for any further reductions in wages and pensions beyond this specific package. this is a commitment that the government has made. >> reporter: the greeks have been told that before. >> yes, they have been told that before. but should the government not meet that commitment,
to come with the transition to democracy, i am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about the stability, prosperity, and individual opportunity that serves as the basis for peace. >> next wednesday, october 3rd , but romney and president obama meet in their first presidential debate, moderated by jim lehrer of the news hour. watch and engage with c-span, including the live debate preview. the debate at nine, and after the date your reactions, calls coming e-mails command tweets. follow live coverage. .. on direct tv. c-span, created by american cable companies >>> a data among the candidates running to be the next governor. incumbent democrat jay nixon is seeking his second term running against dave spencer also libertarian jim higgs and it's raised as lean democratic. september 21st this comes to us from kmiz-tv. it's about an hour. >> governor nixon. go ahead. >> it's a pleasure to see so many friends we have worked with for so many years one of the reasons i ran for the governor and the things i've done fo
denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follows the white house, repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president denounced the attack. but that is not adequate. if they can't control the cops and military, it is not a government. we should be denunciatory. i doubt there is a single country in the world left in civilization that would not have called back its ambassador. and certainly cut off, or put in terms that relates to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little mor
, our federal government imposes the worst in the world, 35% tax on job creating businesses in our country. the average is 25%. i advocate reducing it to 20% because i think america should be better than average. doing that will help create over 500,000 jobs a year. that's an inpent analysis. tim's view is one of increasing taxes. folks, lower taxes create jobs, greater opportunity, makes our country competitive, and it's amazing to me that tim, who would raise taxes on people buys used cars and folks earning as little as $17,000 a year will then will be put in jeopardy, the hundreds of thousands of defense and technology jobs, and in my view, the men and women in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to raise taxes on job creating small businesses. >> when you eliminate deductions, would you do that for everyone or high income earners? >> first, i'll point out the last rhetoric about taking veterans hostage on economic issues. that's exactly the kind of name calling we've got too much of in washington. we can debate policies, but that's the name call

're not deal with that. government debt is growing more than private debt is slowing and that means we would like japan we're getting more and more in debt. you can never come out of this crisis. melissa: harry, before you go, are you better off than four years ago? that is what average person is answer to that? i don't want to know about you personally or your bank account but when you look at these numbers what would you say? >> again there are two economies. i think 80% of households are not better off. they have made no progress. they have still got jobless worries and their incomes haven't gone up and gone down if anything. but the top 20%, 4% unemployment, the stock market going up makes them wealthier. those 20% would tell you in a poll and polls show, this 20% of the people say yeah, things are better. but only 20. melissa: harry dent. always great. thank you. >>> fracking our way to a healthier environment? environmentalist says fracking boom is the cause of lowest carbon dioxide emissions in 20 years. he is here next to explain. fascinating stuff. >>> dire situation for many states
to the united states, its governments, and its people, this -- catastrophe will only increase our solidarity to entrench the hopes and objectives in which ambassador chris stevens believed, we shall defeat the backward terrorists who do not represent libya, who do not represent islam. islam is a religion of tolerance, peace, and love, just as president obama said, from this platform two days ago. our future is a future that will be charted by people like chris stevens, not people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to others for the death of the person who has joined the long list of martyrs from five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express our deep appreciation for the understanding showed by the u.s. administration following that incident. let me stress that my country is determined to pursue the perpetrators and to bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to insure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful e
east, have they given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the arab spring? >> well, i said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. i was pretty certain, and continue to be pretty certain, that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> sean: now u.s. ambassador, two navy seals, and another american are assassinated, and he calls it's a bump in the road? that insensitive comment was made the day after the terrorist attack on september 12th. we'll have much more on that outrageous interview with dick morris, but first we're joined in studio by the author of a brand-new book out today, "mugged" available in bookstores everywhere. ann coulter is with you. they lied. this is the bottom line here. they said the youtube video, two ways of attack. this is not spontaneous. i have a missile-fired grenade i'm about to shoot into a u.s. consulate and kill a u.s. ambassador. >> you don't think it's a youtube video? >> sean: the one released in july? >> i consider the whole administration a bump in the road. his presidency a bum
that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paula pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz just said that, when his daughter was born, the debt was $5 trillion and now it is $16 trillion. what the heck did she do?" [laughter] >> you think the debt is putting the nation in crisis. >> along with government spending, is causing the dead. we have seen a growing expansion in the power of the federal government. it is crippling small businesses. >> you are the national co-chair of the obama-bided campaign. >> i would put the challenge that we have as a nation in a different context. and say that, to the extent that we are a nation in "crisis," although i would not describe it as that because i believe that we can fundamentally overcome this and that we can do it in a fairly rational and reasonable way
face a government shut down. i think there will be a little bit of chicken game playing at the end of the year. and what most people in washington think will likely happen is they'll negotiate some way to say, here's a broad framework for what both sides want, let's work it out next year. we'll see. >> sheila, i kind of think americans are a little dilutional they are about the economic future and i'm glad they are. i'm glad everybody is feeling a little better, we all are. what has to happen so the financial system supports this. so from a year from now we're not talking about the big, evil, greedy banks and some sense that banks are actually helping america move forward? >> ironically, i think the interest rate policies that are pursuing does dampen the incentives to lend. regional banks that make their money by lending money and the return they can get by lending in an uncertain economy is still quite low. the larger institutions, it's not such a bad deal. they can take their cheap money and reinvest it overseas and they don't have to lend to make money. so, i don't think the ze
, to pave the way for a genetic change in the size and structure of the federal government. so i think yeah, you'll have linda lingle in hawaii who said she doesn't want to get rid of the affordable care act. that is going to become something. i think it is that a lot of progressives are hoping for. what it means however is that democrats might actually experienced losses while the progressive goal is proving durable might be achieved. >> great, fantastic discussion. let's turn it over to the audience here. read in the front row. >> hi, my name is tomball, owner illustrators magazine do with urban notch partners, a lot of shift. each acrobat deals with coverage. per the 2010 census and if you actually extrapolate the data to what their project and now, you're kind of looking not 38% to 62% as far as weight minorities to minority split non-hispanic white and then you add about 120 million minorities so is there any data you have that she was speaking about, even if it was 28%, you're still tracking 10% last than the actual population composition in america. so do you have data that shows how
're getting a chance to look at it. the trustees are basically asking the district government to put up more money to pay for the right sizing plan. the trustos want $21 million to address the plan. it's $11 million typically used for the capital budget and that is to be moved into the right siding budget now. listen to this. the remaining $10 million needed will support its employee separation plan and the report said it can't guarantee the actions relating to faculty and staff alignment won't result in legal action. appears that want report said on average, udc spends 315% more on management positions than another university -- other universities. still no word on the fought our of the university president. we're in the process of putting the entire report online and so that everyone can check in with www.myfoxdc.comcom to see what the report has to say and we'll have an update at 10. >> all right, matt ackland, it's true what they say. >>> men's -- someone's always watching a. a new disturbing report claims the government is spying more americans those days. days. . >> right now. no. no.
negotiate it now and these few remaining weeks before christmas, or we have see the government shut down. i think therwill be a little chicken game playing at the end of the year. what most people in washington likely think will happen is they'll negotiate some way to say here's a broad framework for what both sides want. let's work it out next year. >> sheila behr, i think americans are excited about the future. i'm glad people are feeling a little bit better about it, we all are. what has to happen so that a year if now we're not talking about the 9% versus the 1% and that there is some sense that banks are finally helping america move forward. >> it is your influence policies that jam the lens. the person they can get by lending into a still uncertain economy has. they can take their cheap money, reinvest it overseas, so i don't think the zero interest rate policies, i know they're designed to be doing just the opposite. also, congress needs to get its act together with the president and this administration. there needs to be, certainlily with the real economy, it was the game plan on pr
follow that up. the israeli government, the prime minister, at least, has challenged the united states to define a red line or else is would be able to act on its own without clearing anything with the united states. this sounds to me like an ultimatum. is that what it was? was a governnt of israel giving us an ultimatum? was that wise? >> look, israel was in my portfolio. i have traveled there 13 times. i have had hundreds of meetings with israeli officials. we are in lock step with them on how far iran is toward getting a nuclear weapon capability. we are in step with them on the objective of preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. they do not have the same military capability of the united states has. they do not believe they can wait as long as we can. we need to work together to align our clocks. president netanyahu is expressing concerns. the president shares those concerns. it is a huge threat to israel and the interest of the united states. this president has made clear that all options will be considered to address that. the current israeli government would like the u.s
, a very different governing policy and a different philosophy. joe is very good on the attack, and trying to confuse the issues so that the person leaves the debate confused about who stands for what. my job is to make sure they are not confused about what we stand for and what they stand for. >> you have said olsen, a supreme court appellate lawyer, who won bush versus courgore, as -in. standin >> he is one of the best litigators in americate. he has studied joe biden's tapes and his style. host: he's been preparing for the debate with ted. in kentucky and that is the second of four debates. the first one in denver this wednesday between the president and mitt romney. fort meade is on a line for democrats, john, good morning. caller: good morning. thanks for taking my call. i have been a registered democrat all my life. my dad was a union electrician growing up in west virginia, the coal mining area. everybody is a democrat there. especially the last four years my opinion, i feel the administration is very weak. when the chinese are coming over here and winning contracts with stimulus mo
they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too many americans being too dependent on government? >> you can say something off of the gulf that you regret. i disagree with what mitt romney's said. it is condescending and divisive. the last thing we need to do at this moment is divide people, one against each other. this nation is divided and of an alleged apart enough. people need to be brought together. as we talk about these long-term issues, the country's fiscal policy, we have to have shared sacrifice. everyone has to help if we are going to fix these issues. we have got an issue on the table that is immediate, that is going to call upon congress and the president, which is how to deal with these year-and budget cuts. i am a simple and specific idea about how we can come together. we will let the -- i have a simple and specific idea about how to come together. we will
surveillance by the federal government and they are challenging the law that allows electronic surveillance, this wiretapping because they're concerned that their case will be picked up. they're claiming to have standing to challenge this law because even though the surveillance might be directed overseas to people they're talking to get their dedication will get picked up in the course of that surveillance and so therefore they have the right to challenge it in court. that is the standing issue we we are dealing with. just to get to the merits for a minute, and the aftermath of the exposÉ in the mid-70's about various abuses in the intelligence community and in short in short is set up a system by which the executive branch would have to go to the court surveillance court here in d.c. and get permission when they wanted to do wiretapping for national security purpose to give sworn intelligence information. this is way of making sure that the court, there was a court that had to check and had a role in reviewing the government's effort to do this wiretapping which they ended up using in in
] i think that we shouldn't look at it in terms where the government begins and ends. i think that we are saddled with an insurance system in this country because of what happened after world war ii, an insurance system to provide health care. other countries don't have that to the extent we do, even countries that do allow it. so we have this insurance system, and what the government's, i think, reasonable job is, to make sure that the insurance system allows enough access, um, so that people can be covered within a reasonable premium amount. and that's done simply by watchdog and certain regulations. now, the truth is whenever you have the government involved, you have a question of whether they're doing it as cheaply as possible. but that's why we're still using the insurance system. because hopefully now insurance companies -- how many of you got refund check, by the way, from your insurance company, right? because all these years they've been overcharging for administrative costs. um, and so insurance companies now will regulate by what's a reasonable amount of money to charge a
much president obama's policies cost, they're talking about the size and shape of government and, as you heard him doing very crisply there, we can't afford four more years, is the new romney message. and we can't -- america won't last through a trajectory of more spending, more debt, more taxes. megyn: all right. so he's going to get sharper in his tone, in his contrast, he's no longer worried about offending independent voters or swing voters who may have gone with obama last time but, you know, not worried about offending them about their vote once before. but it, is there a time for that to work, chris? we are six weeks out from this election. >> well, look now, six weeks is a relatively short time in politics, but -- in real life, but in politics it's eras. six weeks ago the race looked different, and we have had a million different tempests in teapots that both campaigns have flapped their wings tourously about. but in reality this is a long time in politics with three debates. we've heard the tough new tone from romney before. we certainly heard it when they rolled out pau
